How Santa Got His Job, is one of my favorite Christmas time reads. It is a fantastic way to motivate students to write and get into the holiday mood. In this writing unit, students will start by listing the pros and cons of Santa’s past jobs and then write a newspaper article. Then, students will love helping Santa out by writing a help wanted ad for one of the many North Pole employment opportunities. Students can then choose which one they would like to apply for and draw a picture of themselves in their new job. Everything you need is included for the reading activity, newspaper article writing lesson, fill in the blanks help wanted ad, employment application and a bordered paper for drawing.

• North Pole Newspaper Template (prints on 8½” x 14” copy paper)
